Hotels on the Costa Brava in Cataluña, Spain
|The Costa Brava - a coastal
region of north-eastern Catalunya, Spain, in the comarques of Alt Empordà
and Baix Empordà, in the province of Girona. Costa is the Spanish
and Catalan word for 'coast', and "Brava" means "Rugged". Originally
a fishing area, the Costa was developed for tourism in 1950. The
area has an excellent summer climate and lovely beaches. Whilst part
of the Costa Brava coastline offers itself to tourist developments on a
very large scale, other areas have retained a more traditional look and
have become "hidden gems" for visitors who want a little more than sun,
sand and sangria. Small towns like Cadaqués have attracted artists
such as Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso and are now fashionable resorts.
As well as the major resorts featured below, the coast between Roses and
Tossa de Mar has many delightful small coastal towns such as Pals, Begur,
Tamariu, Calella, Llafranc, and Aigua Blava.
